Artificially flavored vanilla frozen dessert with chocolate flavored coating and peanuts. Blue Bell Ice Cream is made in Brenham, Texas - a small town nestled among rolling hills covered with bluebonnet flowers. In 1907, Blue Bell Creameries started making butter and after a few years, we began making ice cream. It didn't take long for word to get around that our ice cream tastes just like homemade - maybe better. A lot has changed since then but the quality and care we use in making our ice cream hasn't. It's still the best in the country.
